Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink | First Impression

Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink | First Impression - Befitting Style

If you know me, then you know I’m a Maybelline fanatic. Some of the first makeup that I’ve ever purchased are by Maybelline so when I heard of their Superstay Matte Ink, I had to try it because I love matte lipsticks. Maybelline previously released a vivid matte liquid lipstick and as much as I love some of the colors, it wasn’t matte enough for me. It’s a soft matte so I’m very excited that they came out with the Superstay Matte Ink which is another matte that I was hoping to be a more regular (dry) matte.

It was a rather interesting trial with this lippie because I didn’t expect to have such a difficult time with it. Take a peek at the video above to view my first impression of these matte lippies.

– Long lasting.

– Smells good.

– Does not smudge/transfer.


– Applicator makes it extremely difficult to apply which made it hard for me to apply it evenly.

– It’s a bit sticky when it’s dry.

Despite the issues with this lipstick, the purple shade that I’m wearing (formerly known as “Creator”) is worth keeping and repurchasing. The other two shades were too much of a hassle.

  25. I didn’t realize all of the problems that you could have with applicators of makeup but it does make sense. It does look like a good color, the one in the photos, but it is awfully intense.

  26. This color looks amazing on you. I am not much of a fashion or make-up fanatic but I love to add lipsticks to my beauty essentials. I personally prefer subtle shades.

  27. white

    Your lipstick matched your skin well. Plus your colorful outfits really emphasize. Thumbs on your review, that it gives realistic comments.

  28. You look amazing in that color – I don’t think I could pull it off- but I love the brand. I will have to see if they have anything in my colors.

    1. They probably do. They have a bunch of colors.

  29. I haven’t tried it but the color looks amazing on you! You look great!

  30. This Lipstick really look beautiful on your lips. Nice one.

  31. Great video! I could not image how tricky it could be wearing lipstick. The color is very vivid and I will have to believe you that it smells good. 🙂

  32. The lipstick shade looks good on you. Can’t say much about this, but one thing I am sure, Maybelline is a great brand of cosmetics because I usually see my girl family members buy the brand.

    1. Yess Maybelline is amazing!

  33. I love the maybelline superstay matte ink personally tooo. I got to try it through influencer vox box and i am totally in love with it 😀

    1. Yeah I don’t love it. I’m glad it’s long lasting but it still fails to apply easily.. which is dissapointing.

  34. Not into makeup, but this looks nice on you. You take breathe taking pictures
